Hello Kevin.. i'll be looking over your submission..First of all i'd like to congratulate you for finishing the most tedious 250-box challenge.. not everyone is able to complete it as it takes a lot of time and patience ...

So starting off, you didnt hatch the few initial boxes ..just wanted to point it out ..But no worries, you have drawn the rest of the boxes with confident lines and very well done hatching.. Your lines seem on point and they look very clean..Impressive work..

A box in 3 point perspective will ALWAYS have their lines converge. They can never diverge, or be parallel.

It is possible for them to converge very slightly, but they have to converge, even if it's really hard to notice it the convergence has to be there.

you've done a great job with experimenting different sizes, orientations and rotations of boxes it's also great that you kept your pages with a maximum of 5-6 boxes per page.

Line weight

lineweight should only be added to the silhouette of the boxes..the inside of the boxes that you cant see should'nt be as dark as the parts which you see..so keep in mind to vary their width accordingly

this shown right here is convergence by pairs which is a common mistake .. although there's no definite solution as it still does take a lot of mileage before lessening the convergence by pairs issue, it would help to change your perspective a bit,

This image here shows how each line is actually related to one another, when you move the vanishing point further, your lines will be close to parallel but not completely parallel(it wouldn't be completely parallel because it'll become isometric perspective, and isometric perspective is not real in real life.), when you move your vanishing point closer, the rate of foreshortening also would be dramatic, but you can never make it diverge or split onto multiple points.

Overall this is a pretty solid submission. Don't forget to put this challenge in your pool of warmups as well as the points that i've raised, with that being said i'll be marking this submission as complete.

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

### The Art of Brom

Here we're getting into the subjective - Gerald Brom is one of my favourite artists (and a pretty fantastic novelist!). That said, if I recommended art books just for the beautiful images contained therein, my list of recommendations would be miles long.

The reason this book is close to my heart is because of its introduction, where Brom goes explains in detail just how he went from being an army brat to one of the most highly respected dark fantasy artists in the world today. I believe that one's work is flavoured by their life's experiences, and discovering the roots from which other artists hail can help give one perspective on their own beginnings, and perhaps their eventual destination as well.
